Kieran Poole, Jason Booth, and Rebecca Sherratt discuss the September issues of Activist Insight Monthly and Proxy Monthly.

Activist Insight Monthly explores how widening valuation discounts have made the U.K. market attractive, AB Value's board fight at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, a profile of Ancora Advisors, BNY Mellon's vulnerability to activism, and Viceroy Research shorting Reconnaissance Energy Africa.

Proxy Monthly will explore how European investors are using their newfound voting power to call out companies for providing hefty payouts to CEOs that fail to align with shareholder experiences. Plus, an interview with AllianceBernstein on their record-breaking 2021 proxy season. 

Note that, ahead of the release of the Proxy Voting Annual Review next month, you can now download our debut Proxy Voting Season Snapshot 2021 which incorporates recent voting disclosures into an overview of 2021 proxy season trends. It is free for everybody.
